Advice for First-Time Buyers

Pre-Qualification: Meet with a mortgage broker and find out how much you can afford to pay for a property.

Pre-Approval: While knowing how much you can afford is the first step, sellers will be much more receptive to potential buyers who have been pre-approved. You’ll also avoid being disappointed when going after properties that are out of your price range. With Pre-Approval, the buyer actually applies for a mortgage and receives a commitment in writing from a lender.

List of Needs & Wants: Make 2 lists. The first should include items you must have ; The second list is your wishes, things you would like to have but that aren’t absolutely necessary. Realistically for first-time buyers, you probably won’t get everything on your wish list, but it will keep you on track for what you’re looking for.

Representation by a Professional: Consider hiring your own real estate agent, one who is working for you, the buyer, not the seller.

Be Objective: Instead of thinking with your heart when you find a property, think with your head. Does this property really meet your needs?

Buying a property may seem rather overwhelming. That’s why having a professional represent you and keep track of all the details for you is high recommended.

Home Buying Process

Pre-Approval:
This will give you an idea of how much you can afford. Also, having a pre-approval shows sellers and banks that you are serious about buying.

Begin House Hunting:
Now comes the fun part! You can shop confidently knowing that you are pre-approved for an affordable price range with your agent.

Make an Offer
How much you offer will depend on the asking price, the market, comparable sales in the area and other factors. Your offer might be accepted, rejected, or countered. You might be the only buyer, or you might have to compete with others. You won’t know until the time comes, which is another reason to have an agent help you.

Seller Accepts Your Offer:
Escrow is opened. You must submit paperwork to start the loan process which takes approximately 30 to 45 days. The lender will also order a home appraisal to protect you and the bank and to make sure the home is worth the price you’ve agreed to pay.

Get a Home Inspection:
Your real estate agent will order a home inspection. On the average home inspections cost between $250 to $400. That’s a small price to pay for the peace of mind it brings.

Final Walk Through
The final walk-through generally takes place a day or two before closing. It’s your opportunity to walk through the house to make sure all discrepancies found during the inspection have been fixed (if that was part of the agreement).

Sign final loan docs:
The final step before you are handed the keys. This process transfers ownership of the home from seller to buyer and, finalizes your loan terms and conditions.

SELLERS

When selling your property, effective marketing will help ensure that your property receives maximum exposure to attract a ready, willing and able buyer.

Our Seller Clients get Maximum Marketing Exposure!

We communicate with you every step of the way. It’s important that you are fully aware of the results of our marketing as well as feedback on showings.

Before you list your property For Sale, there are two important questions that should be addressed before you sign the paperwork. Both are critical.

The first is ‘What should the list price be for my home’? Sellers net more bottom line dollars and sell their property more quickly and with much less stress when they price their property within the appropriate market value range for their property. After our initial phone conversation, We’ll deliver a Sellers’ information package to you which will contain all information you need about selling your home. Also We will include a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) that will compare your property with similar properties that have sold or are currently on the market. This is only the raw data and will need professional interpretation and analysis based on the current market conditions. This professional perspective will be provided when we meet personally to discuss the specifics of your particular property.

Perhaps the more important question, however, is ‘Which Realtor should I select to market my property’? Not all Realtors are alike! You owe it to yourself and your family to get your money’s worth and hire a Realtor who does more than just enter your property into the multiple listing service and pray that someone sells it. This approach represents the barest level of service for which you are still paying a top dollar service fee.

Please call us at   (949) 33 88 0 44   for a free consultation to discuss your selling needs and to talk about any questions you may have. That’s how it all starts.

Or, if you prefer, please fill out contact form giving us as much information as you can about your property and timetable so that we can be better prepared when we talk. As always, there is no obligation. We look forward to working with you.
